A 29-year-old man from the Isle of Wight has said that he fears somebody is following him on the microblogging site Twitter.
‘It all began when someone replied to a post I made, saying ‘me too’,’ said James Crowthorn, who lives in Sandown. ‘It happened a few times for different tweets. It’s a bit weird – like someone on the internet is paying attention to what I’m saying.’
Mr Crowthorn says he keeps looking over his shoulder to see if anyone is watching, but this means that he is unable see his monitor at the same time. ‘I’m getting a bit nervous about that, too,’ he admitted, ‘because sometimes I get the feeling people can see me, as if there’s some sort of camera connected up to my computer. It’s terrifying – the thought that someone somewhere could have a picture of my face in some sort of book. I’m very worried about my privacy, as I was saying on my YouTube channel just yesterday.’
